Wandsworth Mediation Service proudly announces the recognition of seven of its volunteer commercial mediators in the top tiers of The Legal 500 Mediators section. Congratulations are in order for Laura Tweedy, Mia Forbes Pirie, Nick Pearson, Rebecca Attree, Rupert Cohen, Serena Davis and our founder Stephen Ruttle KC for achieving top-tier rankings, showcasing their expertise and dedication in the field of commercial mediation.
In addition to this significant achievement, we are thrilled to celebrate the continued inclusion of our founder, Stephen Ruttle KC, in the Legal 500 Mediator Hall of Fame. Here is Stephen’s full listing:
Stephen has been in practice at Brick Court Chambers since 1978. He stopped practising as a barrister and QC in 2002 and since then has worked full time as a Commercial Mediator. By January 2019 he had mediated nearly 1500 cases of nearly every legal type from both public and private sectors. Most of these disputes have involved seven or eight figure sums; but Stephen regularly mediates larger cases where hundreds of millions and occasionally billions are at stake. He practises mainly in London, but mediates regularly in other parts of the UK and Ireland and in many jurisdictions abroad. For many years he has been rated as one of the leading mediators in the UK. In 2017 he featured in a new list, Who’s Who Legal “Thought Leaders: Mediation” as one of only five in Europe and 16 in the world. Stephen is increasingly active as a mediator of community and faith-based disputes. He is currently involved in projects that aim to train a new generation of peacemakers and to use faith-group buildings as places from which community mediation services can operate as neighbourhood reconciliation centres. In 2018 Legal 500 included Stephen in its Mediator Hall of Fame which recognises individuals who have received constant praise by their clients for continued excellence over many years.
The Legal 500 is a renowned legal research directory with over 30 years experience. The directory assesses firms and individuals in 150+ jurisdictions based on both qualitative and quantitative analysis. The Legal 500’s rankings are a testament to the practice area teams providing cutting-edge and innovative services.
We at Wandsworth Mediation Service are delighted and immensely proud of the achievements of our mediators. This Legal 500 recognition is a reflection of their exceptional skills in mediation. To learn more about our mediators and their outstanding contributions, please click here.
